Flash Cards by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comI have been asked by my “overseas” readers how to do Flash Cards for A4 size cardstock and metric measuremnts.  I felt terrible that I couldn’t really help because metric is way out of my comfort zone!  Along came my guardian angel Angela Ebert!  She emailed me the conversion in metric form.  The measurements are just a TINY bit different than here in the USA but I can’t see any reason why all the Flash Card videos wouldn’t work.

A HUGE shout out to Angela Ebert for sending me the measurements on how to do it!

Original Flash Cards:

Coloured Cardstock: 10.5 cm x 7 cm (4 1/8 x 2 3/4”) = 8 pieces
Neutral Cardstock:    10 cm x 6.7 cm (3 15/16 x 2 5/8”) = 8 pieces

Flash Card 2.0:

Coloured cardstock starts out as 21 x 29.7 cm = A4 size

  • Put short side to top edge of trimmer and cut in half @ 10.5 cm
  • Put short side to top edge of trimmer and cut these pieces in half @ 5.25 cm (not at nice neat measurement )
  • Put long side to top edge of trimmer and cut these 4 pieces in half @ A5 (14.8 cm)
  • You will have (8) pieces 5.25 cm x 14.8 cm (2 1/16 x 5 1/2”)
Neutral Cardstock:    5 cm x 13.5 cm (1 15/16 x 5 5/16”) = 8 pieces
Hey, while I’m at it, how about I share the conversion to make the storage boxes for your Flash Cards too!  Angela helped me with these too.  She’s such a sweetie!

Storage Boxes for Original Flash Cards:

Cut your cardstock to 9 cm x 20 cm

Score at 2.5 cm

Storage Boxes for Flash Card 2.0:

Cut your cardstock to11.5 cm x 19.5 cm
Score at 4 cm
Whew!  Bear in mind I haven’t touched the metric system since the 3rd grade (and we never used it again) so if you find any discrepancies in my numbers, please let me know.
I hope this helps and that you can now find a way to make Flash Cards work for you no matter where you live and what size cardstock is “standard”.
